Senate Bill 5 Issue on November Ballot
Senate Bill 5 Repeal Question Will Be On November Ballot Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said enough valid signatures have been gathered to place a repeal question on the November ballot regarding the state’s controversial new collective bargaining law. The group We Are Ohio spear headed the signature drive to place the question before Ohio voters whether or not to repeal Senate Bill 5. Opponents contend the law unfairly attacks workers while supporters say it helps state and local governments control spending. Groups on both sides have been raising money in anticipation of the ballot question. Senate Bill 5 signed into law by Governor John Kasich in late March bans strikes by public employees and restricts collective bargaining rights for more than 350,000 teachers, police officers, state employees and others.
